THE funeral of a young Bradford man who died in a motorbike crash will be held next week, his family have confirmed.

Trafford Quantrill-Stott, 21, of Scholemoor Lane, died from his injuries after the bike, a KTM Duke, he was riding crashed in Clayton Road, Lidget Green, on Friday, May 10.

An inquest into his death was opened by assistant coroner Oliver Longstaff at Bradford Coroners’ Court yesterday morning.

The brief hearing was attended by Mr Quantrill-Stott’s family. It was confirmed he died at Leeds General Infirmary as a result of injuries he sustained in the motorbike crash, which involved “road furniture” and a parked car.

The inquest was opened and adjourned to a later date.

The young labourer’s funeral will be held on Friday, May 31, at Scholemoor Crematorium from 2pm.

A sea of floral tributes was left at the scene of the crash in the days following Mr Quantrill-Stott’s death and many took to social media to send their condolences.

Jordan Serrant posted: “Only with you last week pal, God bless your soul.”

Chelsea Fletcher said: “RIP Trafford lad gone too soon. Such a lovely lad, thoughts with the family. Fly high beautiful.”

Maya Fieldhouse added: “Thoughts go out to his family and friends.

“Got the honor of serving him a pint or two was a really down to earth lad... rest in peace.”

In 2015, Mr Quantrill-Stott was awarded the Golden Trowel Award by training provider Aspire2Work.

He was the first winner of the award, and at the time was praised by centre co-ordinator Jamie Barrett.

He said: “Trafford won the ‘Golden Trowel’ competition due to his commitment, dedication and hard work.

“Trafford has displayed exemplary standards throughout his course in regards to attendance and time-keeping, attitude, work ethic and enthusiasm.

“He often works through his break time and always puts 100 per cent into all tasks he is assigned. He is an absolute pleasure to teach and working with students like Trafford makes my job worthwhile.”

Olivia Lisle, 19, organised a balloon release to commemorate her friend’s death and said those who knew him were attempting to raise money to cover funeral costs.

She said: “He was a good friend. I’ve known him since I was 11

“There was a little group of us who used to meet up on Friday nights. We’d all have a McDonalds and then go ice skating afterwards.

“It was a proper laugh and those memories will never go. Now we’re older, we’d started going out to nightclubs together.”

She described him as a “kind-hearted” person who was always there to help others.

“We’re all so shocked that we won’t be seeing him dancing round with his sunglasses on on a weekend,” she said.

Several other friends shared their devastation on Facebook.

Nathan Tatum wrote: “Still doesn’t feel real mate. Heaven has gained the strongest angel. Sleep tight my brother until we meet again my friend. Missed but never forgotten.”

Meanwhile, Chloe Gillespie posted: “RIP Trafford I can’t believe I’m hearing this.

“It’s shocking you’ve been taken way too soon, you will be missed by everyone.”
